Twas the Night Before Christmas by the Fireplace

"Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house  
Not a  creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there."

Stamp TV Sketch

This poem by Clement C. Moore inspired me to make this card featuring a fireplace with stockings hung. I found this challenge at Allsorts Challenge Blog with a link to the poem and immediately thought of this stamp that I received last  year but had never used. I colored the image with copics, pencils, and  added some stickles and glitter to the stockings and the fire. Assembled the card using a sketch from Stamp TV Challenge.
